LAKE OSWEGO – On Saturday, April 24, 2021, at 5:27 p.m., Lake Oswego Communications (LOCOM) dispatched officers to the 1600 block of Campus Way in Lake Oswego, where a homeowner observed a male subject exit his home and begin running with the family’s laptop. The homeowner initially chased the suspect but lost sight of him near Greentree Avenue.

Multiple officers responded to the area and an area search was conducted for the suspect. During their search, LOCOM received another call from someone reporting a person matching the description of the suspect taking a bicycle from the park near Greentree Avenue at Carter Place. This caller indicated the suspect was still carrying a laptop and was armed with a knife. Officers surrounded the area as the caller, who was still on the phone with LOCOM, reported that the suspect was heading into a backyard in the 1400 block of Greentree Circle and was possibly jumping fences.

A K-9 Officer from the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office responded to assist and then LOCOM received a 911 call from a cell phone at a residence in the 1400 block of Greentree Circle. There was no voice on the 911 call, so officers responded there to ensure the suspect was not there. The K-9 Officer began searching around the residence and determined that the suspect was hiding under the house. The suspect was not compliant with the officers but was taken into custody with the assistance of the police K-9. The suspect, 40-year-old Brandon R. Edwards of Portland, was treated for a dog bite and was lodged at the Clackamas County Jail for Burglary 1 (ORS 164.225), Theft 1 (ORS 164.055), and Criminal Trespass 1 (ORS 164.255), Criminal Trespass II (ORS 164.245), and Felon in Possession of a Restricted Weapon (ORS 166.270).

This was a great team effort between our officers, the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Officer, and our citizens to quickly and safely catch a dangerous suspect.
